No, I’m not giving up Social Media for Lent. My 2013 Lenten discipline is to give thanks to God for those who have helped me to grow into who God intends for me to be and become. See all of my 2013 Lenten Thanks here.
It is no secret that I am smug San Franciscan. Sure, like any city we have our problems and struggles around economics, development, politics, etc. but these things do not outweigh the complexity and beauty that I have experienced in The City over the past 2+ decades. While we may not be able to retire here, for now, we have chosen to struggle through the cost of living to raise our three daughters in the city by the bay. The beauty, the diversity, the food, the people and the “only in San Francisco” moments make it all worth while.
Today I give thanks for the city of San Francisco.
